Pulsed Laser Diode Driver

The model 772 pulsed laser diode driver is a highly efficient (~75%), compact (4.3” x 2.7” x 1.5”) and lightweight (<10.5oz) unit comprised of a regulated DC converter and a pulsed driver.
With a 5- to 8-V DC input (18- to 32-V DC option available), the model 772 is designed to supply up to 140-A current pulses (50 to 400 ms) with <20 ms risetime into diode stacks of 15 to 24 V at an average power to the load up to 20 W.
The model 772 also provides power and trigger signals for AMI’s Pockels cell drivers. It does not require a heatsink and offers open circuit, short circuit and thermal overload protection. Alternative configurations can be made available for higher current, larger-stack voltages or custom packaging, including separating the driver and power supply cards for miniaturization. The model 772 is the ideal solution for compact, rugged applications such as lightweight ground-based and airborne laser designators.
